"Remember the critical spirit.
If someone criticizes you that triggers rejection or non-acceptance or shame or the old strategic lie "see your such a homosexual" recall you’re in the process of restoration. Also some of your wounds may be so deep or hidden that your feelings will be coming from these unhealed wounds.
However, consider is this person a critical person? If so they are not operating in a spiritual gift? Lower your expectations many people do not walk after The Truth or they think they are honoring truth and defending God and yes and yes many are hiding unhealed wounds.
Now offense, criticism will come from prophets, prophetesses, pastors, those in ministry positions and other people in the church; and we know from family, friends, coworkers and employers. It will always be part of the sinful nature and it is an area that needs to be reigned by the truth and brought to death by the power of The Holy Spirit so we dont give offense or allow it to control our life.
Ask yourself, was the criticism intended to pull you down or build you up? If it can be seen as constructive criticism the reproof is a blessing and opportunity for growth in restoration and maturing in Christ.
Consider this truth: when other birds attack an eagle or a hawk, they do not counterattack; they just soar higher until the other birds grow weary. So it is to be with us, just take the keys and rise above them, yeild it to Jesus straight forth and refuse to retaliate with criticism or judgment, retaliate with love in Loves Power.
Don’t allow them to be creative in forming you into their image by any destructive criticism and don’t let that become an opportunity for demons to get another foothold. Jesus will catch up on them and show them their sin structures somewhere down the track and if they don't let Him than thats their business not ours.
Be blessed and be a blessing
